Continuing on with the narrated guides for this tier of content, I asked several places what people would like to see next – and almost universally everyone responded with Maloriak. So I tackled Maloriak next, and you’ll find the video below. I actually think that I remembered most everything this time, but did realize that I forgot to give a note about healing assignments so I’ve again added a few additional notes below.
Another friendly reminder that this video will be viewed best at one of the higher resolutions, and either on YouTube or in full screen.
Just a few things to mention:
- Breaking Down the Healing Assignments - we assign two full time healers to the Maloriak tank, the same resto druid/holy paladin combo that you saw heal for Magmaw. We assign one healer responsible for keeping up the swill tank – who will also heal him while he’s tanking the aberrations (Usually a resto druid or shaman). And one healer to heal the second aberration tank (usually our disc priest). Both of the aberration healers also assist with healing the raid. We have three healer assigned full time to the raid, who will also assist with the Maloriak tank during Engulfing Darkness (usually a holy priest, resto druid and resto shaman). All of the healers help cross heal during key parts of the encounter as needed.
- Barkskin - this is another encounter where there are lots of optimal barkskin moments. Scorching Blast, Consuming Flames, Ice Blocks, anytime in phase 2.
